   Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother’s placenta after the birth of her baby by dehydrating, powdering and placing it into vegetarian non-gelatin capsules for the mother to ingest as she sees fit.  The purpose of the mother ingesting encapsulated placenta is to reintroduce the beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins and other nutrients to her body following labor and birth to help restore a more balanced body function, assist in the prevention of “baby blues” and the more serious postpartum depression, increase breastmilk production and quality, shorten healing time, increase maternal energy levels, and provide an over-all feeling of wellness.

  Placenta Tincture

Another option for mothers is the creation of a Placenta Tincture with a small portion of their placenta, prior to   preparation for encapsulation. Tinctures rest for six weeks after the birth and can be used on their own in times of transition, stress and illness.


 Placenta Art Prints

Optionally, mothers may choose to have placenta art prints made with their placenta on archival paper.  Some mothers choose to keep these in the baby book, a keepsake box, or to display them.  The prints are another way to honor the placenta and to preserve the image of the “tree of life” that the placenta creates.
